REMAS - Training Course
Gestión del riesgo de emisiones de gases de efecto invernadero en incendios forestales
Greenhouse gas emission risk management in forest fires
Forest ecosystems, and in particular the plant structures of the different strata and soils, accumulate and fix significant amounts of carbon through different processes each year, constituting important terrestrial carbon reservoirs.
However, the high risk of forest fires in Mediterranean regions, coupled with climate change, is one of the main threats to the release of carbon in the form of CO2 contained in forest ecosystems, which would transform their function as a carbon sink into a source of significant greenhouse gas emissions to the atmosphere.
As a fundamental part of the project, the capitalisation and transfer of results is key to progress towards the achievement of REMAS objectives. In this sense, this training course brings together all the knowledge developed and progress made in the project and is aimed at public administration technicians who wish to be trained in climate change, remote sensing, quantification of carbon sinks, management and prevention of environmental risks, as key training elements necessary for optimal territorial and environmental management by public administrations in the context of present and future climate change.
The overall objective of the training course is to acquire knowledge on the greenhouse gas emission risk in forest ecosystems, which are the most vulnerable areas, innovative technologies for the quantification of carbon in vegetation and soil and how these emissions can be reduce and carbon stocks can be restored after a forest fire.
- 0 Introduction
- 1 Identification and assessment od vulnerable forest ecosystems
- 2 Assessment of carbon stocks in forest ecosystems: quantification by remote sensing
- 3 Monitoring forest ecosystems carbon stocks in pilot REMAS areas
- 4 Greenhouse gas emission risk model: calculation and implementation
- 5 Best practices for carbon sequestration and restoration in damaged ecosystems
- 6 Policies and strategies to mitigate GHG emissions risk.
Aprendizajes/ Participants will learn
From TODAY you can register for this training action to learn about the risk of greenhouse gas emissions in forest ecosystems, which are the most vulnerable areas, innovative technologies for the quantification of carbon in vegetation and soil and how these emissions can be reduced and carbon pools can be restored after a forest fire
Concerning how the course works, it is noted that
- All thematic units are recorded and you will have the support of the teaching team via chat with answers in 24-48h during working hours.
- The training course will be delivered by the REMAS team, so the language is in English.
- ou will receive a certificate of participation in the REMAS training course at the end of the training and after completing the participant questionnaire.
- The training lasts approximately 8 hours.
Our main objective is that you acquire the knowledge of 3 years of work compiled in these thematic units in a synthesised form so that you are up to date with the latest developments in the framework of forest fire emission risk management.
In less than 1 minute you can register and then train at your own pace in those 2 weeks.
REMAS is coming to an end in 2022 and we want this knowledge to reach you, to be available to you in a practical way and for you to have your certificate.
See you inside!
